Tucked into the woods off the beaten path, this log structure awaits your visit. Very nice but not "fancy". Full menu offers a wide variety of foods. Salad bar. We had the ribs.....a half rack for $19.00. At first I thought it was a bit pricey but when the ribs came......OMG...it was massive.....more than I could eat. We had a party of 11 and no one could finish there ribs. Service was perfect.... on the spot. The ribs were fall of the bone and tasted great. Do yourself a favor and give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

We went on a Sunday afternoon in which we not only enjoyed a delicious meal, but also, a few drinks, and outdoor musical entertainment.

Thank Pablo S

I dined here for lunch with my son on January 14, 2018. Rode in again on snow sled and had a fun time. Not much to report here since my last review. The soup and salad bar were spot on as usual and the ribs (house specialty) were as good as always. One of the best meals you can get in upper Michigan with lots of choices on the menu. Well worth the extra car drive or hopping for the trail for great food!

I ordered a steak which was quite good. My wife ordered and appetizer of Nachos that came on a 14 inch plate!! Way too much food for an appetizer. The place was nicely decorated and the service was very good.

Thank you Carl for the favorable review! We appreciate it!
Our portions are very generous and admittedly, our Nachos certainly are enough for two people!
We're happy you had a nice experience and look forward to seeing you in the future!
